Life lessons learned

Twelve years. 

It sounds like a long time but in reality it goes by in a blink of an eye. In the meantime, you watch the ones you love grow. You see them learn in life as if they’re a beautiful butterfly learning how to fly. 

My name is Jessica Catherine Reynolds. I am a proud 16-year-old junior at North Central High School. Continuing my journey here at North Central is such an honor. School is an important priority of mine. My brother, Justin Reynolds, used to sit in the same seats I sit in and walk the same halls I walk every day and he always used to tell me, “Jessica your high school days are the best days, but they also go by fast and determine your future.”  

High school isn’t just about the classes you sit in or the people you sit with at lunch. It’s about finding out who you are and what you want to be when you get out of school, whether you go to college or not. Not only has high school taught me how to act and respect others, it has showed me that everyone really is different -- in a good way, of course! God made us that way on purpose.  As Romans 8:31 says, “If God is for us, then who can be against us,” and I believe that to be true. Of course, I have learned many new life lessons, in and out of the classroom, but it has really thought me how to communicate with my peers and how to interact with all types of people. These are the tools we develop that no one talks about, but are also the necessities that help us most throughout our lives. 

So high school may be hard, but, I promise, you can get through it -- and you’re not alone.
